I first fell in love with Robert Downey Jr in Heart and Souls, where he had a coterie of souls with unfinished businesses as his guardian angels. I almost drooled over our t.v. set when I saw him sing with Sting in Ally McBeal. He made deadpan hilarious in Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang, and now Robert Downey Jr. is Ironman.
So while some people may think that Robert Downey Jr may be too old to be playing a superhero, I think he fits the bill just fine. This is probably going to be the movie I wouldn’t mind spending a bit to see in a real movie house next month. Oh and yes I am going to buy the DVD as well.
I’m sure you’ve all seen this trailer before, but I couldn’t resist.
Other links I found while looking for photos of Robert Downey Jr. as Ironman are:
- Marvel.com’s Digital Comics Site – where you can browse through a few comics online for free. There is a subscription fee for unlimited viewing though.
- Domestic Bliss: Ironman US Media Buzz – where you can find even MORE links to all the media buzz that has been generated about the movie, the actors, the comic superhero etc.
- The IMDB Trivia page on the Ironman movie – did you know that both Tom Cruise and Nicholas Cage wanted to play Tony Stark?
- Ironman Tony Stark – just about the most comprehensive website about anything Ironman and Robert Downey Jr. as well as other members of the cast.
- The Ironman Wiki Page – where you can find even more links to other Ironman stuff, whether movie or comic related.
- The real Ironman – The website of the Ironman World Triathlon Championship,
There, that should keep any Ironman fan like me happy for hours.
